Claims example from Premier Client Solutions (PCS)
Medical treatment leading to ring damage
While at a beach, a PCS policyholder fell and accidentally twisted her finger when a wave crashed into her.
Medical consultation was sought immediately and the doctor recommended removing the ring by cutting it in order to proceed with the necessary medical treatment for her swollen finger.
In view that the removal of the ring was crucial for the treatment of the insured’s swollen finger, hence the cost of repairing the ring was covered under the PCS policy.
The cost to repair the ring was S$5,700 with no further deductible as it is a scheduled article insured in the policy.
Accidental spill resulting in damaged handbag
A PCS policyholder’s branded handbag that was placed in a protective bag and kept in the wardrobe was damaged by leaking fluid from a dehumidifier sachet.
The fluid seeped through the protective bag and got in contact with the handbag. When discovered, the protective bag was still filled with the fluid.
Both the retailer and repairer enquired confirmed that restoration of the handbag is not possible as the leather had been damaged by the chemicals in the fluid.
The damaged bag was assessed under the Contents coverage of the PCS policy with settlement based on replacement cost at S$ 4,100 (net of deductible S$200).
